Pogo News 9/17/04

"Daddy was Right!....I'm an Idiot!"

The following statement by George H.W. Bush confirms the title of this issue of "Pogo News" and should be used to defuse the non- issue of both candidates as to their activities during the Vietnam war and further confirm who should be elected in November.

"Trying to Eliminate Saddam....would have incurred incalculable human and political costs. Apprehending him was probably impossible....We would have been forced to occupy Baghdad and, in effect, rule Iraq....there was no viable exit strategy we could see, violating another of our principles. Furthermore, we had been self-consciously trying to set a pattern for handling aggression in the post-Cold War world. Going in and occupying Iraq, thus unilaterally exceeding the United Nation's mandate, would have destroyed the precedent of international response to aggression that we hoped to establish. Had we gone the invasion route, the United States could conceivably still be an occupying power in a bitterly hostile land."

Since junior's reading ability seems to be limited to reading about goats in a first grade class, he obviously was unable to read or understand what Daddy said!

Junior's record on the environment is equally as bad as his judgment to attack the sovereign nation of Iraq. This fool only represents the powerful corporate special interests and not the American people.
